Writing Away…October, Blogging and the Name Game

First, a quick note that my critique partner, Sayde Grace, has a release today!  THE HARDER THEY BUCK is available for purchase from the The Wilder Rose Press.  Is the cover hot or what?  And believe me, so is the book!  Sayde will be here guest blogging next Monday, the 25th of October.  Click on the cover to link to the Wilder Rose Press and purchase it.

Earlier this week I blogged for Cynthia Eden on Monday about October and Bad Guys.  If you haven’t read her newest book, DEADLY FEAR, you really should.  It’s excellent and I couldn’t put it down.  Then I blogged on Brava and interviewed Maeve Greyson, who is a finalist in the Writing with the Stars Contest.  She writes about really hot Scottish heroes.

It occurred to me that I haven’t blogged on my blog in a bit.  So, what’s going on?  Well, I think I already mentioned that Megan accepted book two in the Dark Protectors, which is now called CLAIMED.  Cool name – it’ll look good in the same font as FATED.  I’m pretty sure book three will be HUNTED.  Which fits the story line.  I’ve written one chapter of the third book and think it’s going to be a fun one to write.  Lots of action and spice.  Oh, and I created a book trailer for FATED, which was rather fun to do.  It’s on my website and also on YouTube.  Take a gander.  FATED is also available for pre-0rder at AmazonBorders and Barnes and Noble.

I sent HEALER to my agent and I’m feeling pretty good about it.  HEALER used to be DEMI and I’m afraid neither name really works.  Right now I’m taking a class about titling your manuscript from B.R. Paulson, so I’m hoping to get the hang of choosing names.  But I’ve found that the class helps me concentrate not just on names but on the book itself…different themes and character arcs.  It’s a great class.  If she gives it again, I highly recommend it.

Now I’m working on a romantic suspense book that I’d like to wrap up in three weeks.  This is possible by writing 5,000 words a day.  I think I can do it – we’ll see. 

Otherwise, I’m just enjoying the month of October.  The sun is still out, but the leaves are turning red tinged with gold and a fine mist covers the ground.  Something howls late at night, and well…maybe I should be writing a paranormal right now. 🙂

    Great book trailer, Rebecca! I’m so glad things are going so well for you. I remember Demi from FF&P. Wow, 5000 words a day. I struggled making 4000 a day last week. You’ll have to know how you mange it.

    You can do it! 5k is nothing for a mastermind like you! Had a blast at the blog you guested at. Very interesting interview.

    Glad you are liking the class! I appreciate your comments and participation! You are a pleasure to be friends with!

    Nice trailer! Very nice. 5k a day, you can do it. Write on, my friend. Love the titles, too. They do fit.

    I think I need to take that class on titles. I stink at them. Like, bigtime. Thankfully have great crit partners and blog followers who help me pick them out. 🙂

    Have a great weekend.

    You are to busy for me love what you did on youtube! Sending my love to you and the family!!!!

  6. Loved the trailer, Rebecca! Good golly but you’re a busy woman. Do you ever sleep? I think your titles are eye-catching and will stop a reader in their tracks and make them say, “hmm…THIS one looks good.” I know I’m gonna read them. 🙂
